Kevin Walter was on the field for a reason & it wasn't his blocking ability. He was better at something than our other options were, what was it? & will DeAndre be able to provide that as well as that thing we were missing?
Getting open and making key catches.however his YAC was pedestrian. Maybe the ability to run ins and outs or comeback routes. I don't know.
However (as a general statement and not knocking anyone's view) IMO Walter, for a 7th rounder by cincy,he did more for us than any of the receivers drafted that wasn't named " Johnson".once we got him
That isn't saying much is it lol
